This build was ever meant for a 24-hr build, never meant for a very serious build. Just to have fun. But live turns different sometimes.
I found a job just before the 24hr build and I’d rather spent the time with my family instead, so I cancelled the 24hr build. Leaving me with 2 purpose-made builds. I only prepared the paintjob for the build. I know it can be seen as cheating, but I spent a long time on the paintjob and since a 24hr build is for fun, I don’t care if it is cheating, it is my build hehe.
In the months after, modelling was set to a very low pace and I had before christmas a 2 week vacation, of which I am finishing now. I set the goal to finish at least one model and made it.
The AMT Dodge Challenger R/T with a 440 sixpack was finished today and it isn’t a very good model. It was seriously polishing a turd. But I am quite happy with how it ended up. I had a few setbacks during the build, but I managed to overcome the issues.
One thing that made me mad, was the decals. I wanted them on and put them on the body. I used Sol on the back of the car, to get the decal to set on the curves, but it didn’t work. So I thought to omit the decals, but when I got them off, the sol had left marks in the paint and I had to airbrush the go-faster stripes with the airbrush, covering the mistakes.
Anyway; I had some issues with my camera and the model doesn’t look very nice in the pictures. In real life, it seriously looks a whole lot better. but here goes:
